The man who trekked from Gombe to Abuja for 15 days to celebrate Muhammadu Buhari’s win in the 2015 election, has received support from the Gombe State Governor, Inuwa Yahaya.
Earlier this month, Dahiru Buba, called for assistance due to a health condition that left him with serious limb pains.
The native of Dukku Local Government Area of Gombe State said the trekking when Governor Mai Mala Buni was the party’s National Secretary fetched him nothing but a certificate.
He appealed to Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State and the party’s stakeholders to come to his aid.
The 50-year old native of Dukku Local Government Area of Gombe, who is a commercial driver, can now heave a sigh of relief after he was presented with a car and the sum of N2 million on Monday.
Governor Yahaya’s media aide, Ismaila Misilli, noted in a statement that Buba was taken to the Government House clinic for diagnosis from where he was referred to a private orthopaedic hospital where he was examined and placed on medication.
He later met with Governor Yahaya at the Gombe Governor’s Lodge in Abuja, in company with some top politicians in the state.
“For taking the pains and risks to show solidarity with Mr President and our great party, people like Buba should not be neglected.
“By embarking on that solidarity trek, Dahiru Buba had shown patriotism and support, he should therefore be appreciated and encouraged,” the governor said when he received Buba.
He added, “So, on learning about his condition, first I directed that he should be taken to the hospital for proper medical attention and I am happy that he is now better after undergoing his first round of treatment.”
